Protection of the rights of Indigenous communities affected by extractive development

Bringing together world-renowned academic experts on indigenous rights in extractive contexts, governmental and civil society representatives, and Indigenous leaders.

Over the course of two days, we will focus on two key objectives:

  1. an in-depth analysis of the socio-environmental conflicts and governance challenges that arise as a result of the extractive industries; and
  2. the production of a series of policy recommendations to address these conflicts and challenges.

We are bringing together world-renowned academic experts like you to explore Indigenous and human rights as they relate to extractive projects. The conference/workshop will consist of three panels, three round table sessions, and a final two-part policy meeting.
